Learn to use two built-in PHP password functions, password_hash and password_verify, to make it easy to create secure logins that follow best security practices.
- [Instructor] In this movie, we're going to learn…how to encrypt passwords with PHP.…Most important rule about passwords…is never store them as plain text in the database.…You always want to encrypt them.…If they're in plain text,…then anyone with access to the database…would have access to every user's password.…That could be hackers who are stealing your database…or it could be authorized users such as site administrators…or employees who have database access.…They would all have the potential…to know all users' passwords.…Even a database backup that your ISP makes for you…or a hard drive that doesn't get completely wiped…before being sold or discarded…has serious potential for leaking passwords.…
And it's not just theoretical.…This happens all the time.…When it happens, it's not just your site security…you put at risk, because many users use the same username…and password on multiple sites.…So if you disclose their password on your site,…chances are you've now given away their password…on another site somewhere else.…
